How do I switch to Xero and move my data?
Depending on where you’re moving the data over from, you may be able to use Xero’s import data function. If you’re moving data over from Sage, Quickbooks or Kashflow, you can use our partner Movemybooks to convert up to 24 months of data. Please see Movemybooks’ website for more information on its service.
What should I do first?
Does Xero help with the data conversion?
We’ve partnered with Movemybooks to assist customers to move data over from Sage, Quickbooks and Kashflow. We also have a 24-hour support team that can guide you through our guidelines for importing data to Xero.
How much will it cost?
Xero currently absorbs the cost of the initial transfer of your data into our systems. If you use Movemybooks to move your data, we’ll cover the cost of you doing so using their most popular Convert 24 service. This allows you to convert up to 24 months’ worth of data free of charge, saving you £180 + VAT per business. If you’d like to convert additional years, the cost from Movemybooks is £60 + VAT per year.
Can I just import my trial balance?
Yes, you can.
How long will it take to switch to Xero and move data over?
This depends on the volume of the data being converted. It usually takes two to three hours to run the conversion. If you’re doing the conversion yourself, it may take a day or more to do, depending on the amount of data you’re converting. We recommend converting no more than three years’ worth of data.
What’s the best date to move over?
You can switch to Xero and move your data over at any time of the year. As long as you have your closing balances, the time of year doesn’t matter; however, popular times are year, half and quarter ends.
Can I bring my payroll information as well?
Yes, you can use Xero’s bulk upload function for this.
